of june, which we reported showed that record 103 u.s. fatalities. u.s. commanders continue to warn that casualties are going to get worse because coalition forces are now taking the fight to the taliban and al qaeda in kandahar province, their backyard. u.s. commanders are saying they are hurting the enemy, having killed or captured hundreds of insurgents in a series of nighttime raids over the past couple of weeks. some of these raids have certainly backfired. today hundreds of afghans took to the streets in the northern city, protesting what some u.s. officials are calling the unintentional deaths of afghan security guards during a joint raid. the goal of the surge is to bring trust and confidence to the afghan people through better security. increasingly, that's looking like it's having the opposite effect. >> jim meceda in afghanistan. >>> president obama promised new help today to veterans of began dpan and all other wars. he announced plans to make it easier for or men and women in uniform to qualify for benefits if they suffer what is known as post traumatic stress disorder.

foundation, good morning. >> good morning. >> as part of this swap, four people convicted of spying for the u.s. were sprung from russian jails. what happens for them? >> we understand two are in britain. they'll be debriefed and time for them to perhaps meet with family members if those family members were able to leave, talk to intelligence officials what they went through. just getting used to being outside of internment in russia will be a big change for him. there will be a whole cast of individuals to meet their needs. also, they'll want to talk about their experiences as well. that is probably hoping both sides of the atlantic as we speak. >> these people were in jail far longer than the ten days. what about these guys when they get back? do they just blend into the u.s. society? or in the london, do they blend in over there? are their days as spies done? >> one of gentleman is quite elderly, so i don't think so. one of the reasons, released for medical conditions as well. terrible conditions in russia. so the medical needs will have to be met. i think they'll live very low-key lives and
the workers may be fired they are not deported. so sometimes they stay in the u.s. and purchase new false documents. since obama took office, immigration and customs enforcement have gotten the files of 3,000 companies and issued $6.4 million in fines on firms that hire illegal immigrants. these numbers came out today. the new focus on prosecuting and finding employers in this county but not deporting workers comes to light as president obama delivered his speech earlier this month on immigration reform promising toughen force. at the workplace and at the border and as the battle rages on including a lawsuit against arizona as well as the lawsuit filed on friday. >> gregg: the immigration debate is being felt at the national governor's association meeting. opponents of the new law protesting appearance by the arizona governor herself, jan brewer. the chairman of the national governor's association jim douglas will join us in a few minutes from now. meanwhile, the president says american veterans need our help to assist the men and women that serve in the military with postwar injuries. in
